Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) are a byproduct of the operations at virtually every oil and gas facility. NORM originates in subsurface formations during exploration, development, and production operations, and has a high propensity to contaminate equipment and the surrounding land area. If surface level contamination occurs, it typically happens via formation water that is produced in combination with oil and gas. Industry workers face a risk of exposure during equipment maintenance, while transporting or processing waste, and during general decommissioning activities.
Farmer Environmental Group’s team of trained professionals performs detailed assessments to determine the presence and/or level of radioactive contamination at oil and gas sites. The NORM survey conducted will provide the information necessary to develop the most cost-efficient remediation plans and specifications, if needed, that meet all regulatory compliance requirements.
